Christ is Risen!

Wishing all a very Happy Easter! May Peace, Hope, and Joy in our Risen Lord be given to you and your families this Solemn Season. In the Words of Our Holy Father Pope Francis on Easter, “Accept the Risen Jesus in your life. Even if you have been far away, take a small step toward him: he awaits you with open arms.” Here is a great Easter Video from the Be the Straw Ministry here in the Bay Area.

 

Holy Week Reflections

It has become a popular tradition for Churches to reflect on Good Friday on the Seven Last Words of Jesus Christ. Archbishop Fulton Sheen said, “there was never a sermon like the seven last words.” This year, I was blessed to give one of the reflections for the ministry of fellow classmate and friend Raj Derivera of the Diocese of Sacramento. I will post links to video’s made as this Holy Week progresses. Have you all have a Blessed Holy Week and Fruitful Triddum. May these words of inspiration bring you to the foot of the Cross and follow through to the empty tomb on Sunday Morning. God Bless you all.
